As Nika said, definitely going, my lady and I have the flights and hotel sorted already as we can both get the time off for sure. On the off chance we don't get tickets to the con we'll still have a great time, Disney, Knotts, etc is always fun and we already have a bunch of friends who live in LA let alone all those of our WoW friends who will be there, so it's worth it for us regardless.

Been to the last 3 of them and they were all well, WELL worth it for those considering whether to go or not, the con itself was great and unforgettable for a blizzard fan, full of stuff you won't see elsewhere, but meeting people from the game was by far the best part, 2011 especially was the best one so far in that regard for me.

Would love to see it for real if it weren't so far away.

I'll probably watch the stream if my week-end isn't too busy.

Will probably try and get tickets again this year. Blizzcon 2011 was a lot of fun and short enough that it doesn't eat much vacation time.

That panda isn't hitting f5 nearly fast enough. That much time is the difference between being 50th in queue and dropping out the bottom.

Ticket! Can't wait to see who else makes it this year.

We got tickets along with another 6 guildies that I know of for sure and a couple of alliance (/spit) friends who are going with us as well :)

The CTR guild had 20-30 people that were attempting to buy tickets in a mumble channel during the process. It was quite a fun listen as they freaked out with various levels of joy and despair.

While not getting a ticket this year, I am local to Blizz, so I hope there will be some meetups.

Looks like I'll be there from Wednesday until Sunday night. Plenty of time for meet-ups, especially if others are making a vacation of it.

So Blizzcon is just around the corner. Any tips, tricks, suggestions for a couple of first timers or recommendations on other things to do in the area or nearby? We are driving so we are gonna have our own transportation.

Disneyland is more or less right next door, if that's of interest there will probably be a kiosk somewhere in the convention center where you can buy tickets.

Any fixings of a meet this year? Maybe we can coalesce at a larger one, not sure who all is hosting this year.

I think Nika and Invis planned the one two years ago. But if I recall correctly, they're not going this time.

IIRC we met at a bar on the corner of Harbor Blvd and W Wilken Wy (Clancy's based on memory and Google Maps). That Thursday evening would likely be the best bet for a meet for balance between those making a long trip out of it and those doing extra parties during the con (I expect the extra/after parties to be done on Friday and Saturday).

I think this will be my last Blizzcon and I'll be quitting WOW within a couple of weeks after (baby on the way and I just haven't had the time to enjoy it for a while). I'd love to meet up again and possibly swap some Bnet IDs (still plan on playing Diablo, SC2 and Hearthstone (made the beta)). I'll be getting there on the 7th (should be early afternoon). It has been fun being a tankadin and I'll likely just keep lurking and tracking the game lore for fun.

Actually, I just had another idea. If there is a sufficient lull in the action during the con (based on the current schedule) and they have the WOW stations up again (just an area for people to play), would anybody be up for a Maintankadin raid? My plan is to throw in the towel after taking down Garrosh and I would love to do it with some of the people on here (provided there are enough willing to join and have Alliance characters).

I'm not going to Blizzcon, but ideally, I should be available for one of those, depending on the time.

I know I'll be at the WoWinsider party on Thursday night. Last time, I left that early to go to the MT party. I could do that again, but if there aren't many MT people going this year it might just be easier to plan to all meet up at the WoWI party (AFAIK, myself, Rhidach, Mel, Anafielle will all probably be there already).

I'll leave it up to the rest of the people going to decide though. There are lots of people I want to meet, so it'll be a busy weekend for me either way, and I don't want everyone else scheduling around me just because I spoke up. Pick what's most convenient for everyone else, and I'll make sure to make an appearance.
